Two nations who are looking to pick up some perfect momentum before restarting their World Cup qualifying run, Switzerland will welcome Greece to St. Jakob-Park on Wednesday night.
Starting with the hosts, although Switzerland might have seen Spain end their European Championship adventure over the summer, the Reds did gain plenty of plaudits. Stunning many across the continent as they came past France from the penalty spot following an action-packed 3-3 draw against the defending world champions, Head Coach Murat Yakin also saw his side land a thumping 3-1 win against Turkey. Looking to pick up some perfect momentum on Wednesday night before they reopen their qualifying run against European champions Italy on September 5th, the Swiss should also be boosted by an extended purple patch on home soil. Last seen in Basel landing a thumping 7-0 win against Liechtenstein in a friendly contest at the start of June, Yakin’s side have won each of their last six home fixtures across all formats.
As for the visitors, while Greece might have failed to book a spot at the summer’s European Championships, they are enjoying what has been an extended bounce. Last seen back on June 6th when picking up an eye-catching 2-1 win away at Norway in a friendly contest, Head Coach John van’t Schip now finds his side enjoying a 10-match unbeaten run across all formats. Including a 1-1 draw against Belgium at the start of March, Ethniki also managed to snatch another point when they faced off against Spain in a World Cup qualifier earlier in the year. Smelling a golden chance to pick up a Group B victory when they face off against Kosovo on September 5th, Greece will be looking to cause another upset here. In a contest that could see a host of chances in midweek, we’re backing over 1.5 goals at St. Jakob-Park on Wednesday night.
Bet: Over 1.5 goals at Switzerland vs Greece 4/11 for Wednesday’s international friendly @ 888sport
